Publisher's Summary

Some women are born with a little something...extra. 

Oona Walsh is one of them. She learned early on that being honest about her gifts only led to heartbreak and abandonment. But now she's made a place for herself in Rivers End as the owner of a thriving bakery called Indulgence. Even better, she's figured out a safe way to use her powers to help people, while flying well under the radar. But when sexy architect Sam Walker throws her carefully constructed world into chaos, she's faced with a choice that will change her life forever - no matter what she decides. Will revealing her secret cost her the only place that has ever really felt like home?

Sam Walker is finally ready to move on from his messy divorce and start dating again. He's had a thing for Oona for months, and when they finally get their shot, it's everything he's been fantasizing about - and then some. Sam's learned the hard way that any relationship without a foundation of honestyis doomed. But Oona is hiding something something from him. Will she come clean and give them a chance? Or will the very honesty he demands reveal that he bit off more that he can chew when it comes to Oona?

A Touch of Magic

Oona has opened a bakery in Rivers End and she’s very popular. One of the reasons? The little magic spells she casts upon each creation. The customers who enjoy her products don’t know and won’t likely be hurt, so why not? I could practically taste each item as she prepared it. I’m not much of a baker (read: not at all), but I can appreciate savory treats.

Sam has been visiting Oona’s bakery just about every morning for months now. He’s an architect who works from his beautiful home and he likes biking into town. For the treats and the company. He’s been observing Oona from afar, waiting for his chance to ask her out. He does and she turns him down.

That night, though, they wind up at the same social event and when Oona perceives she has a rival for Sam’s affection, she steps up and marks Sam as hers. Their courtship moves at lightning speed from that point, their passions leading them to Sam’s bedroom very quickly. Sounds great except Oona hasn’t mentioned she’s a special person.

Before they get too close, Oona pulls back, afraid of the rejection she’s sure is coming. Sam’s hurt and confused until she returns with news that will bind them together. She also drops the little bombshell about her special powers. Sam’s confused and I don’t blame him. Not sure I’d trust someone who kept something so big from me. Not sure I’d want to hitch myself to a witch either.

As friends rally around the couple, they come to realize maybe they are meant to be together. This is a CJ Hunt romance, so I was guaranteed my happy ending.

Erin Bateman is a new-to-me narrator and I enjoyed her performance. I’m glad to see she does the next witch book in the series and I’m excited about it. I just have to mention the striking cover. Wow, talk about popping colors. Anyway, another great short book by CJ Hunt.
